If you’re going to have this classic, you won’t go wrong here.
The batter is light and crisp and the squid is perfectly tender.
Part of the squid family is prepared very similarly like Calamari.
The difference in this long thicker cut will give you a more meaty flavor… tender flesh with crispy batter.
Octopus a la Gallega-
Not all octopus we’ve had were good but Paco, once again, does it right in this Galician style… nice cut and sprinkled with sweet pimiento powder.
Baby Squids/ Chipirones-
I prefer more grilled than fried so these were perfectly tender in lemon and garlic sauce.
Nice texture and Yum!
This very hearty and comforting soup is filled with loads of seafood including mussels, clams, prawns, squid, fish chunks, and pasta noodles.
It is very filling which will leave you complete with a smile.
Mussels in Sailor sauce-
By far, this is the Best sailor sauce we’ve tasted in the South of Tenerife. Unlike a lot of restaurants where the sauce is weak and too runny, at Verna’s their sauce is full of flavors with a bit of kick and smokiness.
We had this multiple times and it’s always been consistent. Be sure to ask Bernardo to serve with bread as you will want to soak up every last drop!
Roasted Leg of Lamb-
Really good roasted lamb and a large portion, for your money.
Fresh Fish of the Day-
Oh my oh, my!
Skate was on the special menu of the day, so soft and tender, it melted in your mouth like a butter.
Highly recommended if this is on the menu!
I love grill marks vs. some pan-seared meat. And I also love slight char on the outside with succulent tenderness in the middle.
At Verna’s, you will get the additional flavors from the high-temperature grill which makes this perfect to pick up with your hands and chomp it down.
This aged Ribeye from Salamanca is absolutely phenomenal. The flavors are amazing and so succulent.
This Ribeye left such lingering taste, in a good way of course, which I couldn’t help but think about them thereafter.
Of course, it was perfetly grilled and cooked to perfetion!
Perfectly prepped and grilled; this fresh filet melted in the mouth and made me debate if I wanted a second portion right then and there!
